Gladys Maria LimHing, 91, passed away on October 23, 2023 of natural causes, surrounded by her loving family. She was a native of Jamaica and graduated from Immaculate Conception High School. After immigrating with her family to the United States, Gladys worked at the University of Miami Law Library and later at the University of Tampa Library.

She worked enthusiastically until age 86. She is survived by her children Francis, Jennifer Schwartz (Joe), Andrea Calow and Sharon Bromberg-Lim (Sarah) and grandchildren Shane Calow and Krista LimHing (Bill). She was predeceased by her husband of seventy years, Herman, who passed away in 2022.

In accordance with her wishes, there will be a private cremation and memorial for immediate family.

If you are so inclined, you may make donations in her memory to: MacDonald Training Center–Empowering People with Disabilities, which she supported in life.

    I was privileged and honored to work with Gladys at the Unversity of Tampa. What a bright light she was! She will always be remembered.

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services. The “Authorization for Cremation and Disposition” form must be signed by the next of kin in the following order: spouse, son or daughter (of legal age), parent, brother or sister, grandchild, grandparent.
